Without much commentary or analysis by me, two interesting and related (it seems) links. An article about how all-white influence can affect your judgement and another, a study, showing that an all white jury is 16x more likely to convict a black defendant than a jury with even one black person on it.

Lest we think racism is always something overt and intentional, these seem to point to something else--that the system is inherently "racist" as a status quo, and that it takes active diligence to ensure fairness otherwise.
